Cakes, Cakes, Cakes!

Amy Brace

Usually my day-to-day orders consist of cupcakes. Any and every delicious cupcake from my menu, or even creations we get to make up on the spot. But, recently, I have been having so much fun making custom cakes for birthdays, baby showers, special events, and of course weddings. 

I have done three weddings so far this year and they have all had a tiered cake as the centerpiece. Love it! Baking, decorating, and stacking a cake is a whole different beast than making cupcakes. A fun and delicious challenge indeed. 

So feast your eyes on the most fun I have been having since I started my business a little over a year ago. I am so honored and humbled by all the continued support from family, friends, and every referral I have ever gotten. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for believing in me and loving my baking creations! So, come for more treats, often and always, I am here to make all your days just that much sweeter.
